HKA Academic Profile 2017-18

HKA Academic Profile

School and Community Hong Kong Academy is an international, independent, non-profit, co-educational day school for students ages 3-18. As an IB World School, HKA is authorised to offer the Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma Programmes (PYP, MYP, DP). Founded in 2000 with an inclusive, inquiry-based, concept-driven approach to learning, Grade 9 to 12 enrolment is over 160. HKA is passionate about supporting all students in their individual pathways to excellence. HKA is an inclusive school, with approximately 15% of our students receiving some level of learner support. Our inclusive approach extends to the International Baccalaureate Diploma as well. At HKA, all students who wish to pursue the full IB Diploma or Diploma Courses are supported in doing so. Our IB Diploma and Course cohort reflects this diversity, with individual scores ranging accordingly. In HKA’s student body, no single nationality represents a majority. Class sizes are kept small in order to allow for individualised instruction and to enable every student to achieve success along his or her own pathway to excellence. Accreditations & Authorisations Council of International Schools (CIS) International Baccalaureate Organization (IBO) Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) HKA Faculty Like HKA’s students, HKA’s faculty of over 100 come from all over the world and reflect a rich diversity of experience and background. Faculty are recruited principally from Australasia, North America, Europe and China. HKA’s faculty are highly qualified, with many holding advanced degrees. School Calendar HKA’s school year begins the third week in August and dismisses in mid-June for the summer recess. In 2018, Semester 1 ends on 19 January. The school observes local Hong Kong holidays, including an extended recess at Lunar New Year, and schedules recesses in early autumn, late December and late March/early April. University and College Application Policy/Limit HKA believes that students and their families should make wellinformed and reasonable university and college application choices. As such, HKA encourages students to apply to no more than eight institutions. Admissions Offices receiving an application from an HKA student can be assured it is a serious application that reflects much thought and research.
